Dear Devs,

When the Favored Soul class came out, at level 17, they gained white wings. Now, the wings are yellow. And they are super-crazy ugly.

Change them back.

Thanks.

I think we should have the option for white angel wings or scaly devil wings. Who says you have to be a soul favored by a kind and benevolent boring god?

BOOOOO!

Also when we die we should have an explosion of feathers like a big chicken getting hit by a truck going 100 mph. BWAWAK!

What is the purpose of the wings?

Do they act like a permanent featherfall?

Do you get to fly and drop BB and commet strike on the mobs?

they're the animation for the active feat: leap of faith (http://compendium.ddo.com/wiki/Feat:Leap_of_Faith)


You are able to leap through the air to bring the fight to your enemies or traverse chasms that make normal adventurers balk. Using this ability costs 5 spell points.

It's just a symbol, like fighters have blue swords, and wizards have spell books.

I, too, hate the new wings color, and I haven't heard from anyone that doesn't.

A cosmetic option like wing dye would be neat, but at the very least please turn them white again. They are horrid as is.

They should be the same color as the character's hair. So that the... um... back porch?... matches the drapes.

Incorrect. In D&D it gives you flight. In this game it gives you ffall and a fast movement leap.

Customizeable color would be nice, but my biggest gripe is how late a FvS gets them. 17? Argh.
I'm 18, but would like to get them earlier. Maybe at 10 or 12?

Any thoughts?

I don't know about you, but with very few exceptions every back porch I have looked at has been tinted brown regardless of that persons hair color.

I think they did it to prevent it from looking like direct copypasta of the Defender of Siberys defensive stance.

But I do like Twerpp's idea of the feathers flying everywhere! :D Please implement it!

Its pretty powerful. Circumvents a whole lot of mobs and traps, kiting better than a boosted ranger. 5 sp being a drop in the bucket for a FvS. 17 is about right. I guess if I were a rule maker/game balancer Id say no less than 15 as it would allow PrE from other classes. Then again you can gank monk AC with one level, evasion and divine grace with two soooo... what do I know.

That is exactly what I pictured! Well actually I pictured the time I was driving a rental car on Kauai and blasted a bird that decided to kamikaze the windshield. Girlfriend in the passenger seat freaking out. Nice.

Wings should work as follows:

Good: Angelic/shimmering wings
G/E Neutral: Bird-like wings
Evil: Bat/demonic wings

Chaos: Comprised of swirling/shifting energy
L/C Neutral: No additional effects?
Law: Metallic/reflective

Alignment aesthetics are cumulative and stack, so Chaotic Evil wings would be Demonic and made up of shifting energies.

Wing colour: Selectable at creation

New Store Item: Cosmetic Wing Dye!

Personally, I like the Yellow, but red, green, blue or even rainbow colors would be neat.

The effect is really what is the best though, with a hot key for clicking the leap every 2 seconds, you can out run any mobs chasing you, or catch up to party members even if they have haste.

What's funny about this thread is that if the wings had started off golden, and then been changed to white, people would be posting this exact same thread saying 'We hate the white wings! Change them back to gold!'

Except not. Nobody likes them because they're ugly, not because they're different.

If you actually prefer gold then say so. If not, then don't troll.

Hey thats a great idea I'd buy it. Its really a niche item though it would be a lot of work for just a few people Im guessing.

Youre right but they would be other people. This is our thread.

Perhaps the wings could be tied to the god the FvS chooses to follow? Vulkoor worshipers could have dark, bat like wings, whilst Warforged following the Lord of Blades could sport metallic wings with hundreds of razor sharp edges.

Of course, going by PnP, the wings of Favored Souls DO change depending on their alignment.

As long as we are on the topic of wings, here are some things that would be neat:

1) Have a way for making them last longer so we leave them visible for the full 2 min time.

2) When you use them, all they do is appear and vanish. Really they should flap as they push you along. And if you are just standing they should move around a bit and streach out and back occasionally so they don't look static.

3) Have a way to auto-flap them. When I want to run fast, I have to click my hotkey every 2 seconds. It would be nice to just turn them on, and move fast without having to keep clicking.

People seem to like them, so I think that the programers should go with the flow, but that leads me to another idea, but that is for a different thread.
